Since September 2009, SixDegreeSteam has worked to show the importance of each person toward all others in the Steam community by developing computer utilities that record relational data amongst members of the community and generate local graphs of these global relations. In an Internet- and Gaming-centric world, SDS is committed to illustrating how all users of the Steam client are friends in the grand scheme of things. SDS strives to promote this ideology and advance the technology utilized to meet these goals.
SDS is a subsidiary project of Subnet ROOT based upon the Steam Community social networking component of Steam developed by Valve. SDS is independently developed by SNR without the endorsement of Valve. All respective intellectual property ownerships are recognized and no claims of ownership towards these properties are made.
